Little artists everywhere today.
My DD just finished two paintings. One is an abstract of me.
: And the other is a collaborative piece that we both worked on. Heehee. Mostly we just slopped paint around and played with colors. I am an artist so I am trying to let DD just discover a lot on her own without getting in her way or trying to "fix" anything.
I'm getting better at letting her be.
We've been reading a library book called "Mouse Paint" a lot so she's beginning to understand more about how colors can mix together to make new colors. She picked out the book. DD loves the library and reading. I started taking her to the library because I was getting so bored reading the same books over and over.
Other than that, DD is still being a kitty. I'm getting pretty tired of her being a cat, but I'm dealing with it. Mostly. Meow. Argh.
After I get off MDC, we all get to take a family trip to the hardware store to purchase plumbing supplies. Wheeee! I actually love going to the hardware store, but not for stuff like this. Last night, while we were finishing up the dishes, the coupling broke off of the drain assembly on one of our kitchen sinks (it's a double one). Water was everywhere! Yuck! DH just fixed the other side of the sink a few months ago and this looks to be the same problem. Luckily, if it is the same, it won't cost much to fix.
What bugs me most is actually that I had finally gotten caught up on laundry and put out a nice clean rug in the kitchen. Now it's wet with yucky drain water and there are a bunch of soaked towels on top of it.
So it looks like we're going out for lunch somewhere and then to the hardware store. I'm also hoping the weather holds so we can get some yard work done before my parents come to town. I love them but they are very judgmental and like to "fix" everything whether we want their help or not. (One reason we live in another state.)
Can't believe it's already October. Wow. Guess it's time to erase the September stuff off my calendar on the fridge. I know I'm
ing again, so I'll step away from the cooler for a bit and let someone else have a turn.
Good to see you all!
